Many thanks for your message.
Our Son did go to your Library met a fellow from your FT Society who was very helpful.
MY Wife's Holder ancestors were on Dumaresq Island for many years.
Kind regards

I am a member of the Manning Wallamba Family History Society based in Taree. We work out of the MidCoast Library in Taree & on the wall in our section there is a large map drawn up by George Ochs, a local surveyor in about 1872. It shows names of property owners on the map. If you son is able to go to the library he may find the location of the property on that map. We have volunteers at the library Monday to Saturday from 10am to 12 noon. Our researchers may have more information. Check out the Society's website about research.

Hope that is some help.
